Every Everything: The Music Life & Times Ofgrant
Documentary on the legendary Husker Du drummer, singer & songwriter directed by Gorman Bechard. Hart welcomes you into his world, immediately addresses any Husker Du reunion possibilities in an old interview, and is shown wailing behind his kit during that renowned middle-American punk band's heyday. And that all happens before the film's title even appears. What follows is a revelatory exploration of a singularly unique artistic force, one whose creative career is often overshadowed by that of his former band mate, and who finally, rightfully, gets a moment in the spotlight. It's an oral, and aural, history of Husker Du's so-called "wild one", from his rocky family life through the formation of his most well-known band; from their bitter break-up into the musical projects that followed; from his troubled past to his hopes for the future. This is one of the most off-the-wall, yet riveting conversations that you will witness for a long time, a no-hold's-barred history of rock and roll and an insider view of the music industry. Hart is a captivating, candid subject who holds the screen as he holds forth on everything from the mismanagement of seminal label SST, his relationship with William S. Burroughs, & his 2013 double-album take on Milton's "Paradise Lost." Every Everything is an insight into a piece of American musical history, through the eyes and thoughts of a truly fascinating and intellectual individual, who is arguably one of the most influential musicians in the last thirty years.
